Manchester City and Chelsea meet at the Etihad this afternoon after a week of contrasting fortunes for the two title challenging sides.
City enjoyed an emphatic 3-0 win away to West Brom at the Hawthorns on Monday night, thanks to goals from Yaya Toure, David Silva, and Vincent Kompany.
There is even more for City fans to be happy about as Last season’s top scorer Sergio Aguero has been passed fit and will make his first start of the season.
Chelsea on the other hand have had a week they’d rather forget following the fallout form last week’s disappointing 2-2 draw at home to Swansea City on Saturday evening.
Asmir Begovic has been handed his full Premier League debut for the Blues as Thibaut Courtois is suspended following his dismissal last weekend, whilst there is no room on the bench for either Eva Carneiro or Jon Fearn as the pair have been dropped by Jose Mourinho following the touchline incident at Stamford Bridge.
